Road Maps - Review of Big Book of Crochet Stitches

Since I normally record the podcast in the car, I do not have the convenience of having a copy of the book I am reviewing or extensive notes in front of me for reference.  Therefore, I have decided to take a different approach with my review process by moving to written posts here on the blog to give you additional information, and to ensure that I have covered all that I want to mention.  I will still give an overview of the titles, products, or other review items within the podcast episodes, but I want to be sure to give these items proper attention as they are often provided to me from the companies free of charge.  As always, all opinions are my own.  I hope you find this new review format useful. Up for review today is Big Book of Crochet Stitches  by the late Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss.  An electronic sample copy of this book was graciously provided by Martingale for my review.  The book is available through in print + eBook for $19.99 or eBook only for $
